BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Pipeworks Brewing Company
Illinois, United States
pdubs.net

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The first batch of Imperial Jones Dog we ever brewed found its way into some Heaven Hill and Buffalo Trace barrels for 10 months and we are sure glad it did. The imperial milk stout brewed with cacao nibs and vanilla beans came out of the barrel with wonderful notes of bourbon, oak, barrel char, vanilla, coconut, dark fruits and dark chocolate. Delicious now or good to cellar in a temperature controlled environment.

Pours a dark brown almost black color. Tons of sweet whiskey to it, milk chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, caramel, and dark chocolate. Thick full body and low carbonation.
This is great; highly recommend.

Dark brown with sparse visible carbonation.

Smell and taste are relatively aligned, with chocolate, vanilla cream, bourbon, oak, and some roast. More bourbon comes forward in taste, making it a little hot and also making it seem like it's thinning it out.

Not bad but there are too many better options out there.

2015 bottle
Looks thinner than it feels.
Smell is nondescript Ba stout, but this thing delivers on the palate. Big bourbon and oak flavors (think rare 15) integrate well with the lactose and the base grains. Def the best Ba beer I've had that advertises a lacto presence. This dog'll hunt down the joneses!
